Kuwait: Amir orders payment of prisoners’ debts to mark 57th National Day

 

As Kuwait prepares itself for celebrating its 57th National Day and 27th Anniversary of Liberation, the Amir of the country, Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, has ordered the payment of debts of both local and expat prisoners from his personal funds.

Praising the Amir’s humanitarian act, National Assembly speaker Marzouq Al-Ghanem, said, “His Highness the Amir’s humanitarian act presents anew an example of how the ruler is aware of citizens and residents’ hardships and preoccupations. Moreover, he has re-presented Kuwait as the Humanitarian Center and a home of social and humanitarian solidarity and relieving the underprivileged.”
Kuwait has many people imprisoned for failing to pay their debts. Such a move from country’s leader is appreciated by both the local and expat community.
